Veenwouden
Merlot, 1999
6 (1 x 6) 750ml
Veenwouden is a Boutique Winery situated on the northern side of Paarl with sweeping views of the Klein Drakenstein Mountains. Once a family affair, Deon Van der Walt was the owner at the time,  Switzerland-based tenor, whilst brother Marcel was the winemaker and previously a professional golfer. The first vineyards being planted in 1989 and by 1993 they released their Bordeaux styled reds. These wines emerged from no-where to capture international attention and are some of the most consistent vintage wines found in SA. The Veenwouden wines are all in immaculate condition today and show a modernity that few SA wines achieved at the time. Truly special and extremely rare.

'Upstaged at times by Classic below, as rousing but altogether more fleshy, palate-friendly and lip-smackingly delicious. 99 reflects cellar’s passion for quality – “only the finest, cleanest, ripe fruit” – ruthless selection (4-5 t/ha yield). Oozes concentration, flavour, class: huge ruby colour; forest berries jostle with mocha under cover of firm, palate far too young to unveil its considerable charm. Hallmark is stylish, measured penetration in the mouth, deliberately understated rather than immediately opulent. 8% cab adds electricity. Oaked 2 yrs 80% new Fr barriques. 14% alc. 2 500 cases.’ Platter’s SA Wine Guide 2002
